The Jimny was the first official offering from Suzuki in US market. And recently Suzuki has officially revealed the images of new Gimny which is scheduled to be launched in Japan later this year. Gimny is referred as mountain goat as it has the similar off road capacity. This small 4×4 from Suzuki will be offered in two variants : Standard and Sierra, the later is bigger in size. The New Gimny is expected to be launched only in Petrol , there is no official word on its technical specification. Being a mini SUV the size will be sub four meter. Experts believe that Gimny will be offered with two engine capacities.
Suzuki stuck to the tried-and-tested formula of building its tiny SUV on a ladder frame and equipping it with beam axles on both ends, hence you can expect stable off-road rides.
Suzuki took the design cues from its retro models. The New Gimny is a boxy looking no-nonsense SUV. The front end gets round headlights and a grille with five vertical slots. Fender flares on all four corners add a rugged touch to the look while letting Suzuki give the Jimny a wider track, and the rear end carries on with a door-mounted spare tire.
The cabin of Gimny is offered in mono black tone. The dashboard is fitted with smartplay touch infotainment panel. The driver witnesses a mix of analogue and digital gauges.
The new Suzuki Jimny will go on sale in select global markets (including Europe, Asia, and Australia) before the end of 2018.
So far there is no official announcement from Suzuki on Gimny’s India launch but we expect its launch in 2019 and we can’t deny its success in India.
